There will also be a photograph area at the booth where attendees can take pictures. However, details were not disclosed as to what kind of trailers will appear. No mention of the upcoming Dragon Quest XII: The Flames of Fate is on the website. Jump Festa will be held from December 17-18, 2022.
Square Enix previously released Dragon Quest information during Jump Festa. This has included a teaser trailer for Dragon Quest XI S.
